Drinking Water Flow Control and Measurement Whitepapers and Case Studies

  1. Electromagnetic Flowmeter Survives Floods
    6/18/2013

    When the Village of Windsor, New York replaced its mechanical flowmeter with an electromagnetic flowmeter in 2003, it was with high hopes that the newer technology would be less prone to failure and require less maintenance.

  2. How Meter Nozzles Can Deliver Accuracy In Municipal Treatment Facilities
    5/16/2013

    The United States Environmental Protection Agency claims there are approximately 155,000 public water systems in the nation and the public drinking water systems regulated by EPA provide drinking water to 90 percent of Americans. To put this in perspective, a family of four statistically uses 400 gallons of water daily. By Jeff Smith, Primary Flow Signal

  3. New Electromagnetic Water Meter Technology Improves Accuracy And Reliability
    12/26/2012

    Electromagnetic water meters are becoming more and more popular for bulk measurement of residential and commercial drinking water, especially as pricing and metering gain traction as tools for more efficient use of water and water conservation.

  4. Singer Valve Improves Aussie Water Supply
    11/20/2012

    Without the right solution, aging water pipes, overflowing tanks and noisy valves can become chronic issues to a water retailer’s supply infrastructure.

  5. Using Virtual Reference Grounding For Electromagnetic Flowmeters
    7/12/2012

    Electromagnetic flowmeters (EMFs) are the leading choice for recording the volume flow of electrically conductive liquids in a wide range of industries, including chemical, pharmaceutical, water/wastewater and food. By Ralf Haut, KROHNE, Inc.

  6. Measuring Tube Construction Affects The Long-Term Stability Of Magnetic Flow Meters
    4/16/2009

    Electromagnetic flowmeters, also known as mag meters, are popular and proven devices for flow measurement of electrically conductive process fluids and for volumetric filling machine applications. Of prime importance to a mag meter’s accuracy and long term performance is the condition of the metering section of the flow sensor. By Dipl.-Ing. F. Hofmann and Dipl.-Ing. B. Schumacher, KROHNE Messtechnik GmbH Co KG Duisburg, Germany

  7. Electromagnetic Flowmeter Brings Stability To Potentially Rocky Sand Pumping Application
    6/7/2007

    Most flowmeters are delivering perfectly accurate results when pumping water. But when you add rocks or sand to the mix, this can figuratively muddy the waters and create noise that leads to instability and false readings

  8. Case Study: Metering Accuracy is Critical To The Success Of Toronto’s Innovative Deep Lake Water Cooling
    6/7/2007
    The city of Toronto has capitalized on a valuable asset lying 272 feet below the surface of Lake Ontario – icy cold water that remains at a constant 39.2 degrees Fahrenheit all year round. Since August 2004, this previously-untapped resource has been supplying economical and environmentally-friendly air conditioning to large buildings in the city’s downtown
